Look good on the slopes: the new trends

Posted on

While last year loud colors were a hot trend, this year it’s more about subtle and glossy shades. This season’s biggest colors are orange, olive, purple, and yellow, in addition to black and gray. Check out Oakley GORE-TEX pants in orange, olive, purple, and yellow, or Luhta’s color blocking designs in yellow, black, and navy. Salomon also offers looks in the latest colors, both in single colors and color blocking.

Cuts are slim and sleek thanks to new ultra-light Primaloft and down insulation materials to trim the bulk while keeping you warm and dry. Plus an added bonus: snow outfits are also getting an increasing number of practical details, such as snow skirts and detachable, adjustable hoods, elastic, water-repellant cuffs, lined zippers near the chin area and inflatable air pockets in the hood. Look to Rossignol and Arc’teryx — the latter offers a Macai Jacket featuring a hood that fits over your helmet and removable powder skirts. Or the Dynafit Cho Oyu jacket, which is a 530-gram jacket that reportedly doesn’t absorb moisture, even after a full day on the slopes. Fitted jackets for women include the 66°North women’s jacket, or the KJUS International Ladies Pride Down Jacket.

Also, in keeping with gym-to-street trends, expect to see more urban looks with herringbone, twill, cord, denim, and glen check surfaces on jackets, vests, and pants — especially among the snowboarders. Quilted Bermuda shorts and skirts, worn layered over stretch pants, are also setting new trends.
